Metropolitan is a leading European film distribution and production company.  Founded in 1978, it has long been established as the leading English language independent film distributor in France, and has handled many of the biggest independent films of the past two decades, from THE LORD OF THE RINGS through HUNGER GAMES, and including recent fare as diverse as IDES OF MARCH, EXPENDABLES 1 and 2, THE MASTER, HUGO CABRET, KILLING THEM SOFTLY, and LAWLESS.

On the production side, Metropolitan's production label, Davis Films, has produced a wide range of films ranging from Tony Scott's TRUE ROMANCE through the RESIDENT EVIL films (co-produced with Constantin), Christophe Gans' BROTHERHOD OF THE WOLF, Terry Gilliam's THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR. PARNASSUS, and the SILENT HILL films, and has co-financed such films as David Cronenberg's SPIDER and George Clooney's GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK.

Metropolitan is owned and managed by Samuel and Victor Hadida.  The company is generally considered to be one of the strongest companies in the international film business, and was recently ranked as the top European independent film distribution company by the European Audiovisual Observatory's study of the financial performance of European and US controlled companies.

Victor Hadida also serves as President of the European Union's International Federation of Film Distributors, and as President of the National Federation of Film Distributors in France.  He is a leading spokesman for the commercial, political, and legal interests of film distribution in France and the European Union.
